  1. Hey, can you ship to Sydney Australia? please.
  2. I am using Gigabyte EP35-DS3P. Okay just worked it out dude, It finds the hdd with ahci disabled when using kalyway 10.5.2 YAY!.. Just need to know how to add mac osx to GRUB ? Please help
  3. Hi guys, I just dont get it. When I try to boot kalyway dvd 10.5.1 IT DOESNT work when I have AHCI enabled but when AHCI is not enabled the dvd boots fine but the hdd doesnt come up in the disc utility menu. Any ideas or work arounds? Please.

    Just a quick question..

    I have been able to install Mac OS X on my drive prior but I was wondering if theres a way to install it without AHCI enabled in my Gigabyte EP35-DS3P Mother board. Reason I ask is because I cant boot windows vista with AHCI enabled.. Any pointers prior to installing Leopard? Thanks
  5. From what I know you need AHCI enabled for the hdd to get detected, that is until your using the OS and then you can adjust it to work with AHCI8R. Just wait till someone with more experience posts.
  6. Hi Guys, I would love for some pointers or help in doing this on my system, gigabyte ds3p mb. I want to triple boot; Vista, Ubuntu and kalyway os x.. The only success:- I have setup vista 1st and ubuntu 2nd, SO grub picked up on both OS and I have then been able to get a dual boot.. but then I installed os x using GUID which I think was a problem and started getting the b0 error.. Prior to setting up os x I couldnt even log into vista with AHCI sata enabled in my gigabyte ds3p but without AHCI enabled I couldnt select my hdd during my os x installation. So that must be enabled.. I'm left with a conflict between vista and os x. Now I am gonna clear out my entire hdd and start from the beggining can some one help me out please I want to know the easiest and practical way with which boot loader to use as well? I have been able to install os x on whole drive, have done that before, no problem.. I also have paragon partition manager, so that helps me play with partitions. Thanks, Justin M
  7. Thanks mate, this looks to easy.. all i needed
  8. Hi guys, Your speaking to a total noob who wants to install os x leopard 10.5.3 on his pc. I know you guys expect a search and I have done some homework and have attempted to install it before but failed. I tried when I had iatkos v1.0i and it hanged on installing through sata dvd rom. After reasing about this error I found out it was due to me using a sata drive to install. What stage is the osx86 project at? I've read the stickies @ the top of this thread and as soon as I get this up and running I want to make a total noob guide for other people and ultimately give back to the community. Alot of things floating around like, kalway, itakos and retail leopard install but how do you know the best and most practical setup for your hardware? for a total noob this is the hardest thing to work out. I am sure other people come on here and face the same problems but instead of just asking a general question and getting a general answer, I'm willing to input time into learning how this all works. My specs are below and Im sure there compatible:- Gigabyte EP35-DS3P Core 2 Duo E8400 4 GB 800 MHz Geil DDR2 Kit Seagate SATA II 500GB 1 GB Galaxy 8800GT Pioneer SATA 215BK DL Intel Stock CPU Cooler Corsair HX-620 Coolermaster Centurion CAC-T05 What is the difference between all these install types and which one will suit me? Thanks guys, Justin

    Hackintosh Hardware Analysis Noob

    Yeah I forgot about bootcamp thats a great idea Q3. What patches, drivers or important files should I have on hand before I attempt this, going by what hardware I have? Q4. I like the video card I have chosen cause I am sure its 100% fully compatible but there are better options, are the NEW 512MB 8800GT or NEW 512MB 8800GTS fully compatible aswell? Just need to know the answer to these 2 questions please Thanks

    Hackintosh Hardware Analysis Noob

    Bump... please help
  11. Hey guys, I am new here and I'm building my first hackintosh and I have searched this forum for over a week now. I posted this thread because I just want to pass things by you experts before I purchase the hardware in the next week. After reading through many threads I have basically picked up a basic understanding of what is compatible and proven. I just have a few questions at the end, if you can help that would be great So here's the hardware list : MB: Gigabyte P35-DS3P CPU: Core 2 Duo E6750 RAM: 4GB PQI DDR2 800 HDD: WD SATA II 500GB VGA: 320MB Gigabyte 8800GTS DVD: Pioneer SATA 215BK Cooling: Thermaltake Blue Orb V1 PS: Thermaltake Toughpower 600w Case: Centurion 5 and heres the multiple operating system list : MS Windows XP Media Center Edition 2005 MS Windows XP Professional SP3 MS Windows Vista Ultimate x64 Ubuntu 7.10 Desktop Edition Mac OS X Leopard (x86 Project) Q1. Obviously, are all hardware mentioned above compatible with building a hackintosh? and is it recommended? Q2. I am going to use EasyBCD to multi boot operating systems, within the software description it states it will work with leopard, any insight or alternatives? Q3. What patches, drivers or important files should I have on hand before I attempt this, going by what hardware I have? Q4. I like the video card I have chosen cause I am sure its 100% fully compatible but there are better options, are the NEW 512MB 8800GT or NEW 512MB 8800GTS fully compatible aswell? *** Thanks in advance, especially to osx86 project team for making this possible *** Regards, Justin M
